Mathematics Formative Assessment: 75 Practical Strategies for Linking Assessment, Instruction, and Learning
Keeley, Page; Tobey, Cheryl Rose
Award-winning author Page Keeley and mathematics expert Cheryl Rose Tobey apply the successful format of Keeley's best-selling "Science Formative Assessment" to mathematics. They provide 75 formative assessment strategies and show teachers how to use them to inform instructional planning and better meet the needs of all students. Research shows that formative assessment has the power to significantly improve learning, and its many benefits include: (1) Stimulation of metacognitive thinking; (2) Increased student engagement; (3) Insights into student thinking; and (4) Development of a discourse community. The authors also provide important guidance with each technique, including usage tips and caveats, implementation examples, and suggested modifications. With practical strategies that are relevant for all grades and topic areas, "Mathematics Formative Assessment" provides the tools to transform teaching and learning in your classroom. Annotated Resources for Mathematics Formative Assessment are appended. An index is included.
